So I finished up my spring semester last Monday and had a week off before I started my summer session (today). I was really bored the whole week because there was only so much Guitar Hero that could be played, so I decided, what the heck, I'll drive to Charlotte and go to Carowinds. Stayed in Pineville at the Hampton Inn which I got through my cousin so it was only $30/night. Got to the park around 11 on Friday, stayed until almost closing. Did some stuff around Charlotte on Saturday and then went back to the park on Sunday for a few hours.
Carolina Cyclone, not a terrible ride, but nothing special
Not as good as the one at KD
The top section was not braked, quite surprising, like the one at Hershey
Definitely didn't ride because I didn't have a change of clothes, or a towel, nor am I stupid
One year ejection from park for standing on ride? Sure, why not...
I was expecting this one to be like Chang, aka rough and tumble.
For you lift hill enthusiasts
Vortex...through Vortex. The ride turned out to be smooth and very decent.
Yay for Confederate flags!
The only other inversion on Vortex
3 Point Challenge, I burned $15 on this and all I got was a basketball... :(
BORG. The BORG. Zorg? Someone actually called it Zorg.
Had a bit of a rattle, but it's a Vekoma so it was expected. Very forceful through the loop. Me like.
Vortex in the water.
You've seen it before.
Forwards side, no airtime but fairly smooth. Backwards side, painful ejector airtime and much spinal adjustment.
Left the park to drop something off in the car and grabbed this picture while in two different states! Zomg!!!1
See this Six Flags? Lost KIDS, not lost PARENTS.
Fairly Odd Coaster was fairly not bad for what it is.
For you Derek.
Some airtime through the Immelmann.
Made sure that this was credit number 150. And it was well worth it. Sick ride.
Cedar Fair's doing. End of my day at the park.
The end result of my parking receipt sitting on the dashboard on a hot sunny day.
Good to see you had an awesome time! I soooo can't wait to get back on Top Gun in June! T-Road forewards no airtime? Hmm not how I remembered, but I sure remember the ejector air and spinal readjustment on backwards T-Road! Great pics!
